Feelin’ The Effects

by Courtney on August 22, 2010


What’s better than a Sunday afternoon with family and good food? Not a whole heck of a lot! This, my friends, is my family. We may be small, but we sure do know how to have a good time. Come Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, & Birthdays, this is our crew, and we’re a darn good time! […]


Cafe Madison: Best Pancakes In Town

by Courtney on August 22, 2010


This morning, I set my alarm bright and early at 7:00am for a heart pumping workout. I skipped my usual Sunday morning BodyPump class in the favor of time, and did my new favorite Rock Hard Total Body Workout on Exercise TV. That workout is the jam. And as a reward for my kick-butt morning […]

Today was another perfect day for a backyard barbecue! Jay and I headed over to his parents’ house earlier this evening to help celebrate his Mom’s birthday. Happy Birthday Rosemary!!

I Want Pancakes…

by Courtney on August 21, 2010


Why is it that everything always seems to be so incredibly hectic before leaving on a vacation?!? Between trying to pack, making sure bills are paid, and cleaning the house, I definitely have my work cut out for me this weekend! This morning, Jay and I had a few things to run out and take […]

Salad Will Always Win

Can I just say how flippin’ excited I was today to be able to come home to a big ‘ol salad beast waiting for me?? I had packed my leftover salad to bring to school with me, but of course left it on the table on my mad dash out the door. Grrrr. When hunger […]


A Dinner “Situation”

by Courtney on August 20, 2010


Last night’s casual dinner date with Joe & Kate ended up turning out to be quite a fun little evening! To start, my worries about not having anything good to serve went right out the window after Kate said she had just picked up some panko breaded chicken breasts at the store earlier in the […]

4:00?? Really? Is somebody joking? You guys will have to forgive me for the sporadic posts. Unfortunately, things may be like this for a couple weeks, seeing as though I have lots to prepare for with going back to school, as well as our trip to Vegas! I hope that you all will stick with […]


Lighting Speed!

by Courtney on August 18, 2010


I’m typing this post in lighting speed, since I have a softball playoff game to get to!
